Strategically located between the manufacturing powerhouses of Northeast Asia and the dynamic developing economies in Southeast Asia, Taiwan is an important hub for regional and global trade and investment, and a critical link in the global high-technology supply chain. Many successful U.S. firms, taking advantage of Taiwan’s favorable business climate, highly skilled workforce, solid intellectual property rights regime, and open, democratic society, have built a strong Asian presence with Taiwan as a manufacturing base and research and development (R&D) center.  More and more global firms are experimenting with Taiwan as a design and branding platform for Chinese speaking markets, including in mainland China.

Our team of 50 economic, commercial and agricultural officers and specialists at the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) works diligently on behalf of U.S. companies and our economic interests to create business opportunities and expand trade with Taiwan. In particular, AIT’s Commercial Section team — focused on increasing U.S. jobs and supporting the growth of the U.S. economy — helps U.S. companies find new business partners and export markets in Taiwan.
